Plant-Based Diets

The chancellor of Texas A&M University requested that Harvard University investigate two of its nutrition researchers for their involvement with a group that promotes plant-based diets as part of a healthy lifestyle. The chancellor's request follows a report in JAMA last week documenting how the True Health Initiative called for the retraction of a recent study that determined the scientific evidence on red meat consumption is too weak to recommend adults eat less of it — fueling a debate over conflicts of interest and the quality of nutrition research.
